General Education Requirements

  • 1. Composition

  • 2. Literature


    See Note

  • 3. Foreign Language


    See Note

    No credit given for Foreign Language because students in select degree programs may fulfill the requirement with elementary-level study.

  • 4. U.S. Government or History

  • 5. Economics


    See Note

    No credit for Economics because a course in economics is an option, but not required, to fulfill the "Social Science" requirement.

  • 6. Mathematics


    See Note

    No credit given for Mathematics because the "Mathematical Reasoning" requirement may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
